Hi,

 

Sorry - I couldn't keep the test page up on the production environment.

 

I just reproduced the error for you in a test location:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mediacenter.studioline.ne
t%2Ftest%2Fbarchetta_sitemap181.xml
<http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mediacenter.studioline.n
et%2Ftest%2Fbarchetta_sitemap181.xml&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doct
ype=Inline&group=0>
&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0 

 

I have since found that the problem can be circumvented, by explicitly
forcing the validator to UTF-8 encoding.

 

However, not everyone might think of that work-around as it is not at all
apparent from the cryptic source code error message that the site is
issuing. That's why I think it might be a condition that the validator
should handle more gracefully.

 

Best Regards,

Best Regards
